UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 06 DECEMBER 2013
At BCBS, we pride ourselves on our practice based approach, and the co-curricular activities we offer to our students. In November, the faculty organised an ‘Employability Week’ giving students the chance to take a break from their normal academic timetable and take part in a range of workshops, games, guest lecturers, mock assessments and challenges, with fellow students, alumni and representatives from external organisations.
The events were all focussed on improving employability skills, such as team work, networking, presentation skills and working under pressure. As part of the week, prizes were awarded to those students that showed the most outstanding performance, with prizes including iPad minis, which were won by Joshua Poulton, Maya Powell, Thomas Dalton and Ally Hirji.
Lots of positive feedback has been received from students that took part, and plans are now in place to repeat and develop the next Employability Week further, which is scheduled to take place in February 2014.
